The location of this hotel is perfect, right on the beach. Waking up and viewing the ocean can’t be beat. A number of great eateries are either walkable or within a short drive without a lot of congestion. I’ve been staying at the hotel & location since the 80’s which says a lot. It’s the ultimate experience of Mission Beach & San Diego…

If you want to relax listening to the ocean, feeling the cool ocean breeze and people watch get yourself an ocean view room! Worth the extra money. Want to see and do things in San Diego this is the perfect location. Clean rooms, friendly staff with beach chairs and bicycle rentals at the property. There are so many restaurants within walking distance as well as the pier. We stayed during the week and the nights were quiet but not sure how the weekends are. You can't go wrong staying here. This has become our new go to place to stay.

Nice view in a great location. Bed is very soft and comfortable, which is very important to us :D All the staff is super friendly. Madison, at the front desk, was kind and accommodating. Would definitely recommend!

The location is great! Our room was small but worked fine for 2 people. 2nd floor, ocean front. It was pretty clean too. Except for the sides of the table....yuck! Glad I brought my wipes. Sink clogged several times a day too. All in all a good stay, staff is super nice, housekeeping gave us more towels, coffee etc when we asked. I would stay here again.

What am amazing Birthday Weekend Getaway I had at the Blue Sea Beach Hotel! I cant express how wonderful and special the staff made me and my daughter feel! This was our first time at the hotel and trust me it will not be our last! There was a delicious bottle of wine with a beautiful card left in my room wishing me a Happy Birthday! The Oceanfront 2 Queen Bedroom Suite and the view of from my room was breathtaking! Since the pandemic I haven't really had a good night sleep in awhile, but at the Blue Sea Hotel, I slept like a baby listening to the sounds of the ocean each night! The room offers two bathroom, large wetbar area two patio one on the bedroom side and the other from the living room! Large Flat Screen TVs very very spacious room! The room was very very clean! They even have a "Seal" on the door stating that they room has been sanitized! I know that may not be important to others but, I was happy to see that the "Remotes" to the TVs were sealed in a plastic cover! Also, I bought all of my beach stuff with the plans to sit on the beach! Didn't need any of it! I sat by the pool area and enjoyed the view of the beach without leaving the hotel other than to take a walk! The view from the pool area is breathtaking!! Thank you Mike, Maddison, Natalie R, Lizetn and Wally for an awesome Birthday Weekend!
